According to The Guardian, who failed to name a source, FC Barcelona could be preparing a bid for Bolton centre half Gary Cahill(25). Read more after the jump.
The Guardian is of the opinion that Arsenal FC’s interest in the English defender along with Cesc Fabregas’ endorsement of Cahill’s abilities has caused Barcelona to take interest.Cahill will be out of contract in the summer of 2012 and it seems quite possible that he would leave Bolton for pastures anew in the January transfer window. The figure quoted as Barcelona’s possible bid by the Guardian is 5 million pounds (5.8 million euro).
After signing for Bolton from Aston Villa in 2008, Cahill has made 116 appearances and scored 12 goals and is the mainstay of the Wanderers’ defense. For the England national team, Cahill has made 5 appearances and scored 1 goal.
Here is a short compilation video of Cahill’s abilities:
